Montana priest faces child pornography charges

Catholic World News - March 21, 2012

A priest of the Diocese of Helena faces felony sexual abuse charges for possessing pornographic images of boys. Father Rudolph Bullman, pastor of Risen Christ Parish in Kalispell, reportedly told police that he only viewed pornographic images of adults.

Appointed to the diocesan presbyteral council in 2009, Bullman served as diocesan ecumenical officer and was a critic of the new translation of the Roman Missal. “This missal, and the process that brought it to us, betrays the Spirit, Promise, and Vision of VCII [Vatican Council II], things that made it possible for me to convert to Catholicism in the first place,” he wrote.

    “This missal, and the process that brought it to us, betrays the Spirit, Promise, and Vision of VCII [Vatican Council II], things that made it possible for me to convert to Catholicism in the first place,” he wrote. This man is such a deep thinker we can never deserve him. Blushing and stammering, let's give him back.
